No Name-Calling Week
Help End Verbal Bullying in Schools
Each year, during the fourth week of January, hundreds of schools across the country participate in No Name-Calling Week by engaging in educational activities aimed at ending name-calling and verbal bullying of all kinds.
The project seeks to focus national attention on the problem of name-calling in schools, and to provide students and educators with the tools and inspiration to launch an ongoing dialogue about ways to eliminate name-calling in their communities.
To access information about a variety of No Name-Calling Week events for your school or local community, including lesson plans, activity ideas, and a bibliography of resources, visit the Resources section of the No Name-Calling Week Web site.
Educators should feel free to incorporate the No Name-Calling Week curriculum, principles, and resources at any time throughout the school year.
